    At 9:45 am, we meet with the pediatric surgeon to discuss the surgery to remove this tumor on Carson's leg. As a mom, I hate the thought of my son, who's just 3 1/2, undergoing surgery and having to deal with a tumor that may or may not be benign.

    Now that it's nighttime, my anxiety has kicked in quadruple-time.

    And while I'm at it, I'll let y'all know that I have a cervical biopsy scheduled for this coming Wednesdsy. I've gone against my doctor and put this off until after the Disney trip, but the time has arrived to face this head-on. Until now, just Renee knew some of my personal health issues, but I can use all the prayers and good thoughts I can get. :)

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Carson's surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday morning at a local hospital (OLOL). We have to be there by 6 a.m.

    The surgeon did some looking and feeling of the tumor. He said that most are benign, but of course there's always a risk. He also said that Carson's has some "different" characteristics (didn't go into detail), so he will be excising the tissues around it as well to be on the safe side. It will be a larger wound, but it will give some confidence that hopefully all the affected tissue(s) has been cut out. And of course, the tumor and adjoining tissues will be sent off to pathology. I have no idea how long that will take (I''m guessing about a week).
